Family's desperate situation
Organized by: Anonymous Fundraiser
EVENT DATE Jan 02, 2016
Where to start? How to write this down? We are in a terrible situation I should say just hanging by a thread. What happens to our children happens to us. It's been one thing after another with my son's family and I don't have the means to help except moral support which keeps waking me up all night long. My son's family is in bad shape, probably hungry as I write this. Little by little the utilities are being disconnected. He has not be able to find work, to compound all this, he now has health issues. What with low self esteem (it does not help that he's getting no job interviews), being so behind with medical, dental and utility bills, the worries and not feeling well but mostly not being able to support his family Since they do not have any transportation my son cannot visit his father who had a stroke and will pass away any day now. His wife is pregnant and presently they have one 6 year old son. I cannot get this picture out of my mind that they had only one small gift under the Christmas tree. I know it's not stuff that counts but educational toys & books would bring joy to a boy's face. It's a struggle that does not go away, both are in a severe depression now which brings their son down too. They do not drink, do drugs or ever go out to restaurants or entertainments. It's a nightmare to have to ask for help like this and where to turn to? Writing these words is just a slice in the middle, such hardship is too hard to face daily. I will close now and keep praying that a miracle can happen, we must have hope always. Thank you in advance.
